The good part first The story covers their association well and the overarching story comes to the conclusion which is factual But the problem I had was it lacked any excitement any colour vigour which a story of this nature should deliver To me the main point of any narrative on a subject as this should be the relationship between the nation the people and their new revolutionary leaders There was nothing on how the Cubans lives were changed what went on before the revolution and after To tell this story which was so dry I could only read it in small bites it needed to give an account of fidels decisions and how that impacted on the people surely that is the point of a revolution to change the masses lives
